2011 was the year of glossy lips for me, but not so much with lipgloss. I preferred a lipstick-gloss hybrid because this year I decided I didn’t like lipgloss that much anymore. I have gotten much more selective about what formulas I like and won’t touch anything that is too sticky. I also went bolder and brighter than I ever have, thanks in part to several Lipstick Bandits. I also OBSESSED over nail polish this year. It was hard to narrow it down, but I stuck to just the ones I wore a lot.
L-R: MAC Sheen Supreme Gotta Dash, 17 Mirror Shine in Peace (UK product), Hourglass Ignite, Revlon Super Lustrous Coral Reef, MAC Viva Glam Cyndi (disc), Tarte LipSurgence Lip luster in Adored*, Burberry Lip Mist Copper
I also wore some bright, BRIGHT lipsticks this year:
So bright! L-R: Joe Fresh Fuchsia, MAC Impassioned, MAC Vegas Volt, MAC Neon Orange ( I have to thank Arianne of Glitter Geek because 2 out of the 4 came from her,. Thank you, Lipstick Bandit!)
I went nail crazy this year and it was *really* hard to pick just a few, but somehow I managed!
L-R: Butter London All Hail the Queen, Sephora by OPI Sugar Plum Fairies Gone Wild, Sephora by OPI Go With the Flow-er, OPI A True Ab-Original, OPI Mermaid’s Tears, 10 Moonlight #458 (a brand I found at CVS here in the US), Deborah Lippmann Believe, Orly Rage
Well, that’s it! I was going to do brushes/tools but I just don’t have the wherewithal to do it, maybe in early January of 2012.
What did you wear on you lips and tips the most this year? Was there a particular color you went for more than another?
